Cool Red Cone + Radical Hill 8/19/2006

We had a great run today. No mishaps, no breakage on the trail, and a great group of people. We had 12 vehicles including 2 from the FJ Trail Team. We ran Red Cone, finished at about 1:45, and then 9 of the vehicle went on to run Radical Hill, which was just as cool as Red Cone, maybe more so!

A few pictures are attached. More later.

It was nice. Then it was foggy. Then it rained. Then it was nice. Then warm. Then cold. Then warm again. Then it rained again. Then it was nice. Then it rained again. Then driving home it was soaking rain.

Typical great Colorado day in other words!

This was an awesome run. Redcone was coll and the clouds rolled in while we were eating lunch at the top. I thought Radical Hill was more challenging

Had a great time with you guys, thanks. Thanks again to Ben for the ride home after my tranny grenaded on I-70 I drove back up with the pickup and flat towed it home that night. Yesterday's post-mortem revealed a destroyed clutch and tranny. Anyone have an NV4500 laying around? (For anyone who's wondering who the hell this is, I'm the guy in the white '40)
